Some of us grew up around horses and livestock. If you did, you know there is a certain comfort and familiarity to the smells of a rodeo: the dust, the leather, the horse hair and of course the cow patties.
If you a a “city slicker,” than the rodeo, a quintessential American tradition, is a must-see. Get connected to how the West was won!
The Winchester Days and Rodeo is a great chance for Idahoans to get out in the summer sun and watch some wild, ruckus cowboys try to win the buckle!
Make it a long weekend and start off with a variety show at the Community Center, starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 28th. The public is welcome to perform!
The main events begin on Saturday, starting with an all-you-can eat Cowboy breakfast at the Community Center. But if you’re smart, you’re already staying in an Idaho Panhandle B&B, where breakfast comes with the room! There are arts and crafts for sale all weekend long and at 10 a.m., the parade rolls through downtown Winchester. The rodeo starts at 2 p.m. on Saturday on Nez Perce Rd.
The rodeo continues on Sunday and wraps up with fireworks over Winchester lake at dusk.
